That is a good video, I can't remember exactly when I watched it, but it was a bit ago. I like most of those people and agree with what they said there.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I don't think we ever had a thread like this. I have stickied it.

Great video, Kekerusey.

OK,

So another one, this time a piece by the late, legendary comedian George Carlin:


One of the things I am interested in here is his stance on rights ... might as well get this out in the open, I don't believe in rights, certainly not innate ones.  I believe that rights are something that have to be granted by others and as such I believe in responsibilities before rights i.e. that I have the responsibility to allow others the freedom of speech and (en masse) that grants each of us the collective right to freedom of speech.

You only have to read the papers, online and so on the see examples of how people believe that their right to freedom of speech trumps that of others but if (a bog if I guess) I am correct and responsibility to provide said rights comes first then everyone gets that right by default.

I will admit this is very badly argued.
